    From reference levels to results reporting: REDD+ under the UNFCCC 2017

    For well over a decade, developing countries have been encouraged to undertake activities in their forestry sectors that are designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also working to conserve, enhance and sustainably manage forest carbon stocks. These activities are known collectively as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+), which was established under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). More recently, these actions were con firmed by the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change, which entered into force in 2016, as a core element of a new global climate change regime. Under this regime, governments have agreed on policy approaches and positive incentives for activities that reduce GHG emissions and enhance carbon sinks in the forest sector in developing countries. Countries have been supported in their REDD+ efforts by organizations including United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), which has spe cialized in assisting the development of measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) capabilities – crucial to the REDD+ process. This flyer provides an update of developments related to the MRV of REDD+ activities, as well as updating activities related to countries’ submissions of Forest Reference (Emission) Levels (FRELs/FRLs). This report will also summarize experiences with the technical assessment process as of early 2017 and offer an overview of initial REDD+ results reporting and tec hnical analyses of those reports.

    Forest Monitoring and Assessment for Climate Change Reporting: Partnerships, Capacity Building and Delivery 2007
    Also available in:

    This working paper was prepared in light of the upcoming Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC in December 2007 to inform about the status and ongoing efforts in the field of forest monitoring, assessment and reporting at national and international levels. Part I is a review of partnerships between FAO and countries for building capacity and supporting implementation of forest monitoring, assessment and reporting, to meet requirements at national and international levels. At national level, FA O works with countries to establish long-term and robust monitoring systems, based on systematic field sampling and data collection. At international level, FAO supports countries to report to the Global Forest Resources Assessments, which is the leading global reporting process on forests, their management and use. Part II presents basic requirements for national forest monitoring systems, seen from a broader policy context. It reviews the current status in countries with respect to two variabl es that are important for climate change reporting – forest area changes and forest carbon stock. It is concluded that in most developing countries the quality of current forest monitoring would not be satisfactory for an accounting system of carbon credits. However, it is also suggested that investment in national forest monitoring is attracting greater interest, as exemplified by the increasing number of countries requesting support from FAO. FAO continues to work in close collaboration with i ts member countries to improve forest monitoring, assessment and reporting, including helping them to meet requirements for forest carbon reporting.

    Indigenous youth as agents of change
    Actions of Indigenous youth in local food systems during times of adversity
    2021
    Also available in:

    The following publication "Indigenous youth as agents of change - Actions of Indigenous youth in local food systems during times of adversity" highlights six initiatives from Indigenous youth in regions around the world who are leading innovative solutions and collaborations in the face of adversity brought about by climate change and exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The youth initiatives describe how grassroots groups, networks, and platforms established by Indigenous youth have been essential to the fulfillment of basic needs within their communities in the face of this adversity. The publication has been produced under the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) in collaboration with the Indigenous Peoples´ Unit at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
